We provide solutions encompassing creative plan design, vendor evaluation and management, pricing and funding strategies, data analytics, assessing the value of their benefits plans, and legal compliance and governance strategies. We also provide specialty consulting services including clinical/health management program design, pharmacy solutions, disability/absence management strategies and claims audit services. Product-based solutions such as our pharmacy purchasing coalition round out our broad-based suite of offerings.
